Sometimes people ask, “Do you have to believe in acupuncture for it to work? ”
The answer is, “No. But you have to truly believe in your potential to get better. ”
Thought Limitations vs. Belief Potentials
Thoughts are constructs of the Ego, the central processing unit of your human form. They are ideas that arise from the depths of your deeper and lower levels of consciousness. They are not who you are, they are simply reflections of your belief system that developed with your Ego or Mind or Consciousness within the first 5-7 years of your life. Thoughts are useful to communicate with other beings inhabiting this planet and they can assist in navigating the terrain, but they are limited by the individuality of their nature.
Beliefs, (unlike thoughts) are not fleeting concepts, constructs, or ideas. Beliefs are the definitions of ourselves and the world around us. Because they define our definition of our environment, they actively interact with the environment- When something is going wrong in our lives, whether a physical health problem, financial problem, or mental/emotional/spiritual unrest of some variety, it is invariably linked to a self-defeating belief or system of beliefs. Beliefs are the soil from which the emotional body and physical body grow. Healthy belief foundation will grow healthy beings who will in turn cultivate a healthy planet. Unhealthy beliefs will do the opposite. Henry Ford once said something to the effect of “whether you think you can or you think you can, you are right.” This is close to the truth but not quite right. Many people think they can do something and end up failing. The heart of the matter is that whether you believe you can or believe you cannot is what actually determines your success. You can think a type of medicine (such as acupuncture or pharmaceutical medications) will work for you but not get better because you are actually not owning your own health. Likewise, you can be a complete cynic about a particular method but then greatly benefit from it because deep within your core you believe that you can and will get better! Now that does not discount the power of positive thinking by any means. The productivity of thoughts and ideas is strongly enhanced or limited by the beliefs that either support them or deny them.
Epigenetics and the Biology of Belief
Genes Are Not What We Thought They Were
To understand the nuts and bolts of the Belief System we must turn to a rapidly growing field
Cells Are Not What We Thought They Were
It stands to reason that if genes (the building blocks of cells) are not what we thought they were, then cells are also not what we thought they were. Bruce Lipton,
The Multiple Levels of Consciousness
Consciousness is the thinking part of us. It is our waking awareness and our Thinking Self. Also known as our Ego, it is what recognizes us as unique individuals who function as separate beings in a 3-Dimensional world. Consciousness generates thoughts that then turn into actions. It is the
Subconsciousness is the feeling part of us. It speaks and thinks in Sense Language. While the Ego or Consciousness level generally speaks in thinks in words, the Subconscious mind literally communicates in senses such as the Visual, Audio, and Kinesthetic. It also can communicate in languages of feeling such as Emotion and Intuition. It is the soil of all our Belief Systems. Where the Consciousness might be thought of as the navigator of our ship, the Subconsciousness might be thought of as the captain of our ship. It directs our motion throughout the world as well as leading us down whatever path we choose. Unfortunately, there are many communication breakdowns that can take place between these two consciousness levels. Commonly referred to as self-defeating beliefs, this is the condition whereby the thinking self is out of harmony with the feeling self. Usually in this circumstance, there are negative/toxic emotions and thoughts that regenerate each other in a perpetual state of inappropriate regeneration.
Superconsciousness is the Higher Self. The part of us that connects to every living piece of energy all around us with a collective sentience all its own. The Superconscious connects us directly to every other thing in the Universe and is the bridge between Us and Everything. At this level we are in full awareness of the Everything as we are one cell of the Everything. We directly connect to our ultimate knowledge of Self which is not separate at all, but limitless and all-knowing. In Jungian psychology this is known as the Collective Unconscious. In Daoism, it is referred to as our Heavenly Nature.
Psychokinesiology or PK for
By integrating the opposites an open and free-flowing communication pathway redevelops quickly between the Consciousness (governor of thought) and Subconsciousness (governess of senses), which in turn opens the portal to the Superconsciousness (inner divinity). Validation of the consciousness levels being open will occur with more and more serendipitous events. It will seem as though there are a lot of happy accidents or synchronicities. This is actually a sign that you are living within the natural flow.
The actual PK system combines healing modalities from a variety of more right-brain and left-brain techniques and theories including but not limited to applied kinesiology (AK), Jungian psychology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), hypnosis, and
There is a very good reason that PK can be a much faster-acting therapy than other modalities- It goes straight to the subconscious level to heal from the bottom up. Some other therapies, (such as talk-therapy or the use of affirmations) attempt to work on the psyche via a top-down approach where only conscious pathways are used to try to affect change at a subconscious level. Unfortunately this can take years or may never work at all. Still other therapies that work on the emotions and emotional release, offer an
